Q: How do I enroll?

Or mail the completed forms with your check or money order to En Avant Studio, PO Box 1259, Katy, TX 77492. Or call the office (281-391-7779) to schedule a time to come by and pay by cash, check or credit/debit card.

For your convenience, we can send invoices by email that may be paid from your home computer or your phone with your debit/credit card.
Q: How do I receive free studio credit?
A: It's easy! Refer a friend, then remind them to list you as their reference on their registration form and you will receive $50 credit towards future classes! Please allow 4-6 weeks to receive your credit notification in the mail. Contact the office for complete information.
Q: Can I watch a class first, before enrolling?
A: We believe once you try it, you'll love it and want to sign up! So, although we don't allow observers in the classrooms, you are welcome to try a class for free, no obligations. Just let us know when you want to come and we'll let you know what day/time is available! Free trial classes apply only during the school year and are not available during the summer. Free trial classes are not available in full classes. Also, ask about our free sample classes at our Fall Open House!
Q: What do I wear for class?
A: See the individual class brochure for classwear requirements.
